[movies]NGC 4696 in the Centaurus Galaxy Cluster Animations - NASA/CXC/Stanford U./S.Allen et al.
Chandra Images of Elliptical Galaxies QuickTime MPEG This set of Chandra images shows hot gas located in the nine different elliptical galaxies studied in this new work. Each of these galaxies shows evidence for cavities in the hot gas that were created by jets from the central black holes. [Runtime: 0:32] View Still Images [ ]

[movies]NGC 4696 in the Centaurus Galaxy Cluster Animations - X-ray: NASA/CXC/Stanford U./S.Allen et al.; IR: NASA/ESA/McMaster Univ./W.Harris; Radio: NRAO/AUI/NSF/G.Taylor
Chandra, Infrared, and Radio Images of NGC 4696 QuickTime MPEG This sequence of images shows NGC 4696, the elliptical galaxy at the center of the Centaurus galaxy cluster. At the galaxy's center is a supermassive black hole, one of nine black holes studied recently using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. An infrared image, in green, reveals the stars in the elliptical galaxy. Next, the blue radio image shows high-energy jets generated by the black hole...

[movies]Important features of Centaurus A - NASA/CXC/CfA/R.Kraft et al
MPEG This short movie highlights some of the important features of the Chandra X-ray Observatory image of Centaurus A. The entire Chandra image is shown, followed by a zoom into the center of the galaxy where the active nucleus and the launching point for a jet are featured. Particles in the jet and radiation from the active nucleus are both powered by a supermassive black hole. The movie then pans to the upper left to show more of the jet, followed by a view of the shorter "counterjet" pointed ...

[movies]Animation of Centaurus A Arcs - Animation: CXC/A.Hobart
MPEG This animation begins with the location of Centaurus A on the Chandra x-ray sky map. Next, it dissolves from the Chandra X-ray image to the DSS optical to the two NRAO radio images. The final frame fades in the full composite image with x-ray, optical and radio data combined. [Runtime: 0:31]

[movies]NGC 4696 in the Centaurus Galaxy Cluster Animations - Animation: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss
Sequence of Black Hole Illustrations QuickTime MPEG The first artist's illustration shows enormous cavities that have been created in the galaxy's hot gas by jets from the central black hole. The next illustration shows an area about a hundred times smaller, where gas is first attracted to the black hole. The final artist's illustration depicts a close-up view of a supermassive black hole, showing a view almost a million times smaller than the previous illustration...

[movies]NGC 4696 in the Centaurus Galaxy Cluster Animations - Animation: NASA/CXC/A.Hobart
Animation of Black Hole in Elliptical Galaxy QuickTime MPEG This artist's animation depicts a journey into the center of an elliptical galaxy. After traveling past stars in the outer part of the galaxy, the supermassive black hole located at the bright center of the galaxy becomes visible. This black hole is surrounded by hot gas shown in red and yellow, which acts as fuel for the black hole engine...

[movies]Centaurus A Animations - X-ray: NASA/CXC/CfA/R.Kraft et al; Radio: NSF/VLA/Univ.Hertfordshire/M.Hardcastle; Optical: ESO/VLT/ISAAC/M.Rejkuba et al.
Multiwavelength views of Centaurus A. MPEG This sequence of images of the galaxy Centaurus A begins with the deep Chandra X-ray Observatory image, then shows the radio image from the Very Large Array, then the optical image from the ESO's Wide-Field Imager (WFI) camera at the ESO/MPG 2.2-m telescope on La Silla. Finally, a composite image with all three wavelengths is shown. [Runtime: 0:14]
